The real Jeff Flake

Arizona congressional representative and Senate candidate Jeff Flake (R) may be a darling of conservatives, but his dubious associations with the vile Castro dictatorship call into question his integrity. After listening to Flake passionately lobby for and promote the Cuban regime in congress, you cannot help but to wonder who is the real Jeff Flake.

Well, via Capitol Hill Cubans, we get another glimpse of the real Jeff Flake, and it is not pretty:

Jeff Flake's Lobbying Past

In National Journal:

Rep. Jeff Flake has said that his work as a Mormon missionary in Southern Africa in the early 1980s sparked his interest in foreign affairs. But what the Arizona Republican Senate candidate doesn't often speak about is what he did after returning to the United States: work as a Washington lobbyist for an African uranium mine with financial ties to Iran.

Between 1990 and 1991, Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company which operates a mine in Namibia that is among the world's largest suppliers of the nuclear fuel. He earned between $5,000 and $7,000 per month opening doors in the nation's capital and promoting the firm, according to records obtained by National Journal.

  • "Namibia is Cuba!...and Cuba is Namibia! The relationship between Cuba and Namibia is sealed in blood!" Namibia's Founding Father and former President Sam Nujoma, who as head of SWAPO (South West Africa Peoples Org) met Fidel Castro in 1960 and has continued a warm relationship. Castro started training and funding SWAPO (Namibia was formerly known as South West Africa) guerrillas that year.

    Rossing Uranium is headquartered in Namibia.

    "Nabimia's Sherritt" let's call Rossing.

    The U.S. Congress certainly has. In May, Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, introduced twin bills to the House and Senate that would exempt Big Oil from the embargo.

    I do not trust this politician as far as I can throw him.

    What do we know about Romney's thoughts about all of this?

  • Has there been even one politician who has gone to Cuba, been wined and dined, who has not come back parroting the regimes talking points, and done their lobbying? I can't think of one. You know, there's just so much fun to be had in Cuba, and the Castro's are always watching.

    Flake is fishy and then some. Always has been.
